Representative Gene Pelowski (left) received a check for $100 on September 5 from Winona Kiwanis Sunrisers Club President LaVern Hauschildt in support of the annual Model Legislature event that takes place at Winona State University in the fall. This two-day event brings together selected students from participating high schools in Southeast Minnesota so they can learn about the legislative process. The students will propose laws, debate them, and decide which ones to approve. Representative Pelowski is the main organizer of the event. The Kiwanis Club annually provides financial support for this worthwhile educational event.
The Winona Kiwanis Sunrisers Club meets on every Wednesday at 7 a.m. at the Winona Family Restaurant. Kiwanis is a global organization of over 600,000 members in 89 countries that come together in fellowship and service to the community, with projects emphasizing children.
